CAD Geometry Preparation and Meshing for Engineering Simulation in the Cloud
Preparing, uploading, and adapting your CAD assembly for analysis is the first step in setting up a simulation. SimScale supports the most common geometry formats for importing CAD including Solidworks, Inventor, STEP, IGES, STL, and Parasolid. Third-party CAD connector apps are available for Onshape and other tools, allowing for more seamless integration.
This demonstration introduces our 3D CAD and meshing tools for simulation in the SimScale platform. In this webinar, we showcase how SimScale can handle various geometry formats and how users can apply robust meshing to their models. You will learn how to import 3D CAD models, clean the geometry by using our internal CAD mode editing features and apply various meshing settings to make your model simulation ready. CAD mode supports operations like scaling, extrude, body and face delete, surface splitting, etc. with new features being added continuously. You will learn how to use CAD mode associativity with Onshape and other third-party tools.
With nearly 20 years of experience in industry, Jon is an expert in simulation and is responsible for product management at SimScale.
“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
